Individual Whole Life


The Product


A Whole Life policy pays a Death Benefit when the insured person dies. A Cash Value will be paid if the policy is surrendered prior to death. Participating Whole Life policies pay dividends based on the insurance company’s results for similar policies in the participating fund.

Assuris’ Protection


If your life insurance company fails, your Whole Life policy will be transferred to a solvent company.
  • On transfer, Assuris guarantees that you will retain up to $200,000 or 85% of the promised Death Benefit, whichever is higher.
  • On transfer, Assuris guarantees that you will retain up to $60,000 or 85% of the Cash Value, whichever is higher.
  • On transfer, dividends will continue to be paid. However, the level of dividends may be adjusted.
